Depression Poem by Teens

Not Being Able To Talk About Depression

When I wrote this poem, I was depressed. That was my secret. Being a teen and having depression isn't the easiest thing to talk to people about. So instead of talking about my problem, I wrote poems to help me get through everything.

I Have A Secret

default ©

Published: March 2014

I have a secret.
It tears me apart
Each and every day,
Making its way to my heart.
I have a secret,
Something I cannot destroy.
You can't mess around,
Because this secret is not a toy.
I have a secret
I can no longer control,
Every so often
Making damage its toll.
I have a secret,
It keeps me awake at night.
Sometimes I can't sleep,
Because of all the fright.
I have a secret
That's killing me inside,
Keeping the real me
Locked away to hide.
I have a secret
That's making me die.
I'm not getting well.
But the worst part is
I have a secret
That I cannot tell.

I had a similar story to this. I suffer from depression myself. It’s all right to get emotional and let everything out. I’m still going through my depression. I have been for 12 years now, and my depression is very bad. I have gone down the road of trying to commit suicide. Back then I never knew I had depression until I was diagnosed with it and they mistreated me for bipolar mood disorder, but thankfully it wasn’t that. It was just very bad depression. I am on the road to recovery now with medication.
